    I took my wife to Porter's for our 25th...having been once before on a business dinner, I knew she'd live the famous pepperloin, the ambiance, and overall dining experience, and Porter's didn't disappoint. She's picky about steaks--an she was blown away by the perfect pepperloin. My scallops risotto was equally perfect. We're not foodies--and we don't splurge often--but Porter's was everything we could hope for. Thanks for a memorable dinner we've told many of our friends about!

    the pepperloin is usually very good, but not this time. My wife likes her steaks well done, but they burned one side then sent it out anyway. my pepperloin had little taste, and was not tender. usually you can cut it with you fork. not this time. i had to dip it in the mustard sauce, just to get some flavor. at $125 plus tip for 2persons, there should never be an 'off" night

    My fiance and I went to Porter's for his birthday. The atmosphere was great, the service was friendly, and the overall experience was nice. However, the food was pricey (to be expected), but I still felt that it was overpriced. I wasn't exactly "wowed" and my steak was a little bit under cooked. However, I am picky about steak and we had a nice time. My favorite part of the meal was the complimentary wine tasting. The gentleman was very knowledgeable and friendly!

    We did not expect the excellent service and high-quality food that we found at this gem attached to a hotel on a busy street full of chain restaurants. Special touches abounded: Every staff member introduced themselves and addressed us by name; a complimentary wine tasting (with no gimmicky sales pitch); beautiful table setting; classy and quiet atmosphere. Similarly, the attention to detail in the food was notable. For example, lightly salted and steamed green beans accompanying the melt-in-your-mouth pepperloin were a welcome change from the usual butter-drenched afterthought sides at other steakhouses. Truly worth a drive to Collinsville.

    I ate at Porters back in March 2002, more than 12 years ago, while in town on business. I came with family this year for the 4th of July vacation and I was pleased to see the Porter's still in operation. We had reservations for (8) on July 5th to celebrate a couple birthdays. We had a variety of steaks from the menu (ordered medium) and all were absolutely spectacular. We were seated in the private room (with fresh cut roses on the table) near the entrance where I believe there was once a walk-in humidor. Everything we ordered from the menu was great. They even came around with free deserts for those with the birthdays. The carot cake could feed at least 3 of us and the chocolate cake was dense and moist like a giant brownie.

    Six of us (all men) had reservation's for Saturday night at 9pm. Arrived a little early and was seated right away. Two of the guys ordered NY steaks one med rare and the other med. When brought out they were given the wrong steaks. They chose to eat what they were brought because of how late it was and did not want to wait on a new one to be cooked. Also one of the baked potatoes was brought out very cold and had to be redone while another one did not come out as ordered. We were in the private area in the front and at the end of our dinner the bus boys started shoving the large chairs to the front making enough noise it was hard to talk. We felt this was their way of telling us it was time to go. Not happy for the $$.

    My husband I couldn't figure out what we wanted for dinner. We were celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary and his mother suggested Porter's. We had both been before, but it was long ago. So glad we went!! Our waitress, Denise was awesome and the food, PHENOMENAL. Denise suggested the Signature Pepperloin. Neither my husband or I are huge fans of pepper and was afraid it would overpower the steak. Were we wrong!!! The Pepperloin was so tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection! We will be back really soon! Ask for Denise when you go! She knows the menu like the back of her hand! Everything from the appetizer (crab cakes=amazing), salads, and steaks she suggested and based it off of what she learned about us! Can't wait to go back!

    The food and service were outstanding. The steaks were cooked to perfection as ordered and tasted wonderful. Prices are at the upper end for a steak house but this was expected. I was surprised at the number of people who brought younger children in with them. I don't know if they have a children's menu but I didn't see anything listed. I highly recommend Porters for a fine dining experience.

    Denise was our waitress and she did an awesome job making sure our experience was excellent. She included her personal favorites and opinion on the menu items which was most helpful in making our choices. She also suggested a wine and helped us pick out something that we enjoyed and made our evening perfect. The calamari was very good, as was my husbands pepperloin, however my meal was lukewarm at best. I ordered the 8 oz pepperloin and he the 14 oz. There was a very different taste between the two.

    Attended a group luncheon in the private dining room and have to say the food was very good. Four of us had a steak sandwich and it was tender, juicy and quite flavorful. The other three had the club, not only was it gigantic but tasty as well. I was so pleased with my lunch that the following weekend had dinner there and that was a different experience. Steak was lukewarm and not flavorful at all. The tenderloin was sliced into three pieces and in between the two there was a piece of meat that had criss-cross grill marks, much thinner than the other two pieces and had no taste at all. The other pieces of meat were ok at best. Had a similar experience about a year ago and had not been back. I will come back for lunch but maybe not dinner.
